Since 1981 the Cooperative Children's Book Center has offered
monthly discussions of newly published trade books for children and young
adults. The meetings are open to any adult who wishes to read books in
advance and participate in the discussion.
We welcome any interested adults to our CCBC book discussions. Please do read at least one or two books on the list if you plan to attend. If you have questions or would like more information, please call 608-263-3720.
The books on this discussion list are not necessarily recommended by the CCBC. For a list of new titles that are recommended by the CCBC staff, please see our Book of the Week or use the Quick Search feature on our web site.
